Do you have an innovative idea to help people with epilepsy and seizures?
Throw it to the sharks!
The Epilepsy Foundation is inviting entries that represent the most innovative new ideas in epilepsy treatment and care for its fourth annual Shark Tank Competition. The winner(s) of the 2015 Shark Tank Competition will receive international recognition and compete for awards totaling $200,000 to support the development and commercialization of an important new product, technology or therapeutic concept to help people with epilepsy.
The deadline for submitting a Letter of Intent (LOI) is Monday, February 16, 2015.
The Shark Tank review committee will select as many as six finalists. All finalists will be invited to present their product concepts or candidates at the 2015 Antiepileptic Drug and Device Trials XIII, scheduled from May 13-15, 2015, Turnberry Isle Resort, Aventura, Florida. The winning entry (or entries) will be selected through live voting by conference attendees, and a panel of judges (Sharks) representing physicians and scientists, corporate executives, leading industry investors, people with epilepsy, and advocates.
The project(s) deemed to be the most innovative will be announced at the conference, and the winner(s) can receive as much as $200,000 to accelerate their idea towards improving the quality of life of people with epilepsy. All finalists are eligible for a travel stipend to attend the conference and free conference registration.
